Tim Hortons Celebrates Canadian Coffee Talks

Many discussions happen over a cup of coffee, intentional or not. It’s the connection made with friends on a planned coffee stop, to chit-chat with others you may not know well while at activities or events.

Coffee Talk happen in meetings, networking, standing at school drop-off, or an early morning kids hockey game. If you pause and think about your own examples, I’m sure the best conversations happen with a cup of coffee in hand. 

Today, September 29th, is National Coffee Day – and Tim Hortons is a big part of that celebration.  

Whether it’s for work or pleasure, talking over a good cup of coffee is a social ritual for building relationships that never goes out of style,” says David Clanachan, COO, Tim Hortons Canada. “With Tim Hortons serving more than 5 million cups of coffee every day, we are privileged and proud to host so many of the coffee talks that happen all day, every day. In honour of National Coffee Day, we want to thank our loyal guests, many who visit us on a daily basis, and our dedicated restaurant owners and team members who uphold our quality commitment.”


We’re honoured to be a daily stop for millions of Canadians, and it’s a privilege we don’t take for granted,” says Clanachan. “Whether our guests are choosing our Original Blend, Dark Roast or limited edition coffees, our goal is to make sure that Tim Hortons coffee is made to exacting standards so that we deliver a superior, consistent cup each and every time.”

Today, Tim Hortons is thanking guests on social media in honour of National Coffee Day. The brand is asking fans to share their favourite coffee moments onTwitter @TimHortons and @TimHortonsUS using #TimsCoffeeDay, for a chance to win Tim Cards every 20 minutes from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST.
